Leaf decoction used to treat asthma, acute bronchitis, inflammation, jaundice, constipation, edema, high blood pressure, typhoid. In present study deals with the characterization of morphological features, fluorescence Analysis, determination of physical constant such as the total ash value, acid insoluble ash value and water soluble ash value were 6.05%,2.45%, 1.20% respectively. Loss of weight drying was 12%, the foaming index<100, the percent yield for methanol 12% and aqueous 3.60%.
